Mirror Image: Weekly Photo Challenge – Layered

“This week, share with us a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture (or just choose one of these elements if you’d like).”

A tangle of metal plant hangers and broken flower pots. A lizard. A mirror. Layers. Where do the objects end and the reflections begin?

Two Birds Today: Baldpate & Nightingale

When I sit on my roof in the mornings, I share space with many birds. Last year I thought about documenting all those I see in our garden, but haven’t really done much about it since. And maybe I will never do anything in a remotely organised fashion, not being a remotely organised person. But today, here are photos of two types of birds I frequently see in the garden.

It paid no attention to me, as it perched and fed while I drank my cup of tea.P1200990 (2)And perched on the edge of the roof is a Jamaican Nightingale, aka Northern Mockingbird, aka Mimus polyglottos. These are such brave and feisty little birds, which I’ve seen taking on hawks to drive them away from their nesting areas.

Just two of the birds I saw from my roof this morning…P1200942

Looking Down: Weekly Photo Challenge – Structure

“We move so briskly through our daily lives, we don’t typically notice the details of the world around us…This week, share with us the structure of something typically overlooked.”

When I am walking along, I don’t often look down, except for a quick glance to avoid tripping on an uneven surface. Dappled light on the ground beneath the trees…P1180863

I pause and take a closer look…at the textured web of tree roots, dried leaves, bits of broken twig…the ground beneath my feet…P1180884
